both demanding accountability and i think both of them should resign, yes. >> i want to switch gears and come back to the main chance here, the issue is whether mr. romney, governor romney is going to inject foreign policy leadership into wednesday's debate. there's enormous speculation, some of it fueled by his op-ed piece in "the wall street journal" that blasted the president. i know the debate is about the economy, but it's also about leadership, do you reckon governor romney will put foreign policy into that debate. >> all this month you're going to have a contrast on the economy and foreign policy. what chairman o'ryan said is the unraveling of the obama foreign policy. the set backs, the killing in the middle east of an american ambassador. a break in our relationship with our most important ally in the region, and in soyria, over 30,000 people are dead. president obama thinks strength is provocative and history teaches us that weak is provocative. and we're weak overseas as we have seen our defense capabilities decrease and as the president hasn't stood up, with resolution fo

with that. >> if you comfortable saying that. >> i am. >> you know how they cut everything romney says, they cut out all the stuff on both sides of it? all we'll have for you is saying it tit, tit. remember faber, remember what he said? >> yes. the work on his finger. and you let him -- >> no, he stopped right after -- >> he stopped right after you said you what? >> yeah, anyway, boeing engineers and technical workers -- >> who did we have on last week who had a fluffer? >> a fluff off line of clothes. >> right, lululemon. >> is it not lululemon? >> in france it is. >> yeah, it is. what's happening here? the workers are voting to reject the pay offer from boeing. talks are set to resume today. a separate vote is required to authorize a strike so it doesn't necessarily mean it will happen. most experts say at this point that a strike is unlikely. >> we have another stock to mention this morning and that's google. shares hitting an all-time high yesterday after the search engine giant's stock at this point is now the second largest on the nasdaq 100 index. of course apple the biggest. it
a chance, we'll bring you any market moving news as we get it. mitt romney campaigns in the philadelphia area today which a republican hasn't won in nearly 25 years. pennsylvania, that is. president obama sticks close to washington today, though, with three fund-raising events. both men were in virginia yesterday catering to the state's strong u.s. military and defense industry presence. mary jo is still with us. is mitt romney in pennsylvania because he thinks there's a chance? how important is winning pennsylvania to him? >> pennsylvania is one of several battleground states in this election and it comes town really to a handful of states including ohio and florida and of course pennsylvania and virginia. the undecided vote so far is very small, but let's keep in mind at this stage ronald reagan in 1980 was running about five points behind jimmy carter. by mid october, he was 13 points behind and yet he won the election by nine points. >> what do you think will be that catalyst for swinging things in mitt romney's favor? >> a strong debate by mitt romney. there are three of them coming
wednesday that president obama and mitt romney will go face to face in their first debate. they continue to battle each other from of a par in several key swing states. both campaigning just a few miles apart in ohio on wednesday. >> so if they go around as they have in ohio with some board behind them with the numbers saying how it's a moral obligation to reduce the deficit, j ask them, well, explain to us how the numbers work. because they don't. they don't have a deficit reduction plan. they have a deficit expansion plan. >> i don't worry about the polls. i worry about making sure that my message gets through to the american people and the best chance for that to happen will probably be through debates as well as the ads that we each run over the coming weeks. it will be a very intensive time and i'm absolutely convinced that the american people do not want four more years of the last four years and that's why i'll win. >> pippa, there is so much pressure on mitt romney to perform well at the debates. but it seems quite clear that he's given up what lead he might have had in the polls
, i think that the whole tax debate in the u.s. has become a bit of a red herring for both sides. i think the right spends too much time defending it. the left spends too much time advocating. there was a poll out today which looked at wealthy voters and women voters for romney. it showed that taxes were not even among the top five issues for wealthy voters. the most important issues are jobs, economy, how you're going to get this economy moving again. so i think on both sides, this has become a false debate over should we tax or should we not tax the wealthy. i think it really takes the focus off the bigger issue, which wealthy voters are really looking at. maybe raise their taxes, maybe not. that's not even what's important for the wealthy themselves. what's important is how to grow again. >> and how do you grow when you're facing $16 trillion in debt? you have to make tough decisions like the entitlements. >> free cell phones. >> give them free cell phones. >> back to the tax question. i think it is key to solving the deficit problem. the tax plan that i would love someone to put
